Foodie spot in Ptown...

Foodie spot in Ptown. Tucked in a cellar, crowded, loud but quality food. Has extensive Italian menu, and also an ever changing separate continental menu with great gourmet choices.. Great dinner.

After hearing about Front Street all week while in P-Town vacation, I decided I had to go. On special weeks in P-Town, it is difficult to get a table or even a seat at the bar. I went early on a Sunday (closed Mon and Tues) What a treat. My server - a mature woman - was delightful. The ambiance... More

In all of our trips to Ptown we never noticed Front Street. It was recommended by a local this week. My wife, Granddaughter, and I tried it Wednesday night. The menu is extensive and we were torn between a number of menu items. We each tried something different and were all happy with our choices! Now, we can and will... More

I always enjoy this restaurant. We had the short ribs Wellington, open faced and the rack of lamb. Both were very good. We started with a soft shell crab and the stuffed zucchini flowers. Both of these were, to me, even better than the entrees. We also had a side of escarole with white beans and sausage. The service was... More

I have been going to Front Street Restaurant for many years, and the food is always very good. When you walk through the door, you are hit with a cacophony of chatter and immediately notice how small and cramped it is in the restaurant. They have tried to fit as many people inside as possible, but I would rather have... More

I have always loved Front Street, however things there do not change very much. The menu is pretty much the same thing every year. They do have specials and the striped bass was very good the night we were there, but not much changes. The food is generally a very good quality and the staff very attentive.

I was in the mood for fish. The fish special sounded great. I mentioned to the waitress that I really like duck and inquired how their duck was. She said: "the duck is our specialty, get the duck!" I loved it. It was fantastic! I also got the special grilled artichoke which was phenomenal as well, special shout out from... More

We were at this restaurant a year ago and we were still talking about how wonderful the food and service was on our visit. I called for a reservation about 2 months before our planned visit. We walked in and got the worst table right outside the bar with people hanging over us literally with a big arm across my... More
